Convergence of matrices under random conjugation: wave packet scattering without kinematic entanglement


In previous work, it was shown numerically that under successive scattering events, a collection of particles with Gaussian wavefunctions retains the Gaussian property, with the spread of the Gaussian ('Δx') tending to a value inversely proportional to the square root of each particle's mass. We prove this convergence in all dimensions ≥3.
